The Suffolk Heritage Coast is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and there are many Towns and Villages worth a visit during your stay! These include Aldeburgh (for shops + restaurants), Snape with its world famous Concert Hall (and more shops) and Southwold (for The Pier and even more shops!)

For those interested in Wild Life the RSPB reserve at Minsmere is a few minutes drive away or you can walk along the coast if you prefer (allow an hour with stops!)


Thorpeness has its own large boating lake known as The Meare - this is on the other side of the road from the house. At the other end of Lakeside Avenue is the Golf Club and for meals out the Dolphin Inn is a couple of minutes walk away (allow longer on the way back)

In August there is the Thorpeness Regatta culminating in the Firework Display and procession of boats on The Meare.
